Ed Marinaro (born March 31, 1950 in New York, New York) is an American actor and former football player.

Ed played his high school football in New Milford, New Jersey for the New Milford High School Knights. [Rohan, Virginia.

Accessed June 25, 2007. "Ed Marinaro: Class of 1968, New Milford High School"]

Marinaro played college football at Cornell University where he set over 16 NCAA records. While at Cornell, Ed was a member of Psi Upsilon and was selected for membership in the Sphinx Head Society. He was the first running back in NCAA history to have over 4,000 career rushing yards. He led the nation in rushing in both 1970 and 1971. He was runner up to Pat Sullivan for the Heisman Trophy in 1971, the highest finish for an Ivy League player since the league de-emphasized football in the mid-1950s. Princeton's Dick Kazmaier won the award in 1951 when the Ivy was still considered a major football conference. Marinaro still holds two NCAA records: most rushes per game in a season (39.6 in 1971) and in a career (34.0, 1969-71).

Marinaro went on to play professional football for the Minnesota Vikings, New York Jets, and Seattle Seahawks, appearing in Super Bowl VIII and Super Bowl IX with the Vikings. He was inducted in the College Football Hall of Fame in 1991.

After leaving football, Marinaro became an actor. He has been a cast member on a number of television series including "The Edge of Night", "Laverne & Shirley", "Hill Street Blues", and "Sisters". Marinaro currently has a four year old son, Eddie, with fitness expert Tracy York. [ "Sports Illustrated", July 2, 2007, p. 120 ]
